Last Saturday my little sister got married. It was a casual affair - a relaxed lunch with a small group of family and friends. The ceremony and lunch was held at Echoes Boutique Hotel in the Blue Mountains (a few hours drive from Sydney) and the setting was spectacular - with panoramic views over the mountain ranges.
Although my sister is an interior architect and obviously has a great eye for design (see this post a few months ago where I interviewed her) she also has a 6 month old baby and not much time on her hands so she asked me to help her style the table for lunch. Of course I was thrilled to help! And today I thought I would share some pictures of how it turned out.
We went for a natural and rustic look to suit the surroundings. Some of the inexpensive products we bought included tags, twine and confetti from Knot & Bow that I bought from My Messy Room, along with some fake succulents (they travel well up the highway!) and other plants and planters from the local florist. I stamped the names of guests and designed and printed off the menus. And simple brown kraft wrapping paper made a nice table runner.
This was a really inexpensive way of making a very successful table setting and all up it probably cost a few hundred dollars plus some hours in preparation time. Well worth the effort for how it turned out I think!
Congratulations to Emily and Adam (and my little niece Aveline) xxx
Have a lovely day!
